Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has wasted little time in bringing in new players to strengthen his squad this summer – but reported moves for a number of attackers must surely kill off Jason Cummings’ hope of an Ibrox return.
Cummings spent the second-half of the season on loan at Ibrox from Nottingham Forest with director of football Mark Allen confirming talks were ongoing with Forest about making that move permanent.
The Gers reported interest in Liverpool duo Dominic Solanke and Ovie Ejaria in addition to already having the likes of Josh Windass, Alfredo Morelos, Jamie Murphy, Daniel Candeias and others who can fill the attacking roles, makes it seem impossible to that there’s any space for Cummings.
Despite not getting as many chances as he would have liked in the first-team, Cummings showed glimpses of the talent that brought him to the fore at Hibs.
The Scotland international is someone that fans would be happy to see stay at Ibrox but if Gerrard can get the likes of Solanke to commit to a loan spell north of the border then he would surely jump to the front of the queue for a starting place.
Gerrard is clearly looking to make massive improvements to the squad at Ibrox and he may have already made his mind up on Cummings’ Ibrox future.
With the Gers due to return for pre-season training on June 15th, if a deal isn’t done for Cummings by then it looks unlikely one will happen at all.
